A simple music game to help your toddler learn to listen

I will forever love the topic of listening and attention. Sure, it’s something that young children often need help to develop (so we do a lot of it in Speech and Language Therapy sessions), but really, it’s something that we can ALL practise. With so many pulls on our attention in this modern world, taking a moment to tune in and focus on one thing can sometimes be a challenge for us grown-ups too.

I often bring musical instruments to SaLT sessions. They’re fun to explore together and inspire lots of conversation and shared laughter (especially when I have a go at playing the harmonica). In this video I share a simple ‘sound matching’ game that you can play together that boost early attention and listening skills.

Does your child enjoys songs and instruments? Got a favourite song you enjoy singing together? I’d love to know!
